Another darling Piper’s original pattern is here! These are our Bombardier Hats! They are so warm, yet so fashionable, and you can knit them up in a flash. We made them using Boboli Quick, which is a super chunky variegated yarn. Make one for yourself and one for your little one to match! You can purchase the pattern in our shop or on our website here. We also have filmed two short videos that will help you to knit these hats. These are really as easy as a basic beanie, the only thing different is the added earflaps, so our videos will show you how! So simple!
I came across this scarf as I was switching out my summer wardrobe for my winter one. I made this scarf a couple of years ago, and had totally forgotten about it. I totally fell in love with it all over again! I remember that this was really easy, but it looks very complicated. We still sell the yarn and I still had the pattern, so I am going to share it with you! Anything very chunky will work, preferably you will want something with a gauge of 2-3 stitches per inch on #11 or #15 needles. This scarf took (2) 100 gram hanks, but you could use more or less depending on the length that you would like. You will love this scarf!

If you haven’t seen one of these fabulous headbands around town, you have been hiding inside. They are everywhere, and so fashionable and practical! Make your own with our pattern, it is super easy to knit. They are so fast you can make a bunch in a variety of colors to match your whole wardrobe!
This scarf is one of my very favorites! I wear it all of the time!! If you are a little scared by cables but want the fancy look of them, this is a great pattern. It is very easy to make, and I love the look. I used Debbie Bliss Alpaca Silk yarn, but any Aran weight yarn will give you the same look. You will need 2 to 3 balls depending on how long you like your scarves, I used 3 50 gram balls. I added fringe, but that is optional.Enjoy!
I am loving this Jasper yarn that we have in the shop. The colors are amazing and it so soft in your hands when you are working with it! It is an Aran weight so there are a lot of options for what to make with it and it knits up fairly quickly. I made a Lola Scarf out of it! It is probably my 10th Lola, but I could wear them every day!
I brought out this scarf today to keep warm in the newly frigid temperatures around here. I forgot how much I like it! So I thought I would share the pattern with you. I actually made a few of these last year, and no matter what color or yarn I chose, I was really pleased with the result. The pattern looks more complicated then it is, and knits up really quickly. I held together a basic Aran weight wool blend and a fine angora that changed colors slightly to make the scarf shown here. But I also made a few of them with only the wool blend, both turned out wonderfully. I also like my scarves really long, so you may not need as much yarn as the pattern calls for. Have fun!
UPDATE: I have recently started re-making this scarf in an entirely different yarn for a totally different look. Check it out here:
I did take my needles down about 2 sizes to a #6, but used the exact same pattern with no other changes. We have also added a You Tube video that is very helpful with row 3 that you can find in this post.

After almost a year of not being available in the US,Classic Babies by Rowan has returned. This book has been by far the most popular baby knitting pattern book at Piper’s. The sales may be influenced a little by the fact that Jeanette made three of the sweaters out of the book. Now that we can get the book again, we are tempted to make even more!
I am not sure why, but for some reason it is a bit tricky to find good knitting patterns for kids. There are a million for babies and toddlers and adults, not so many for 3-10 year olds.Easy Kids Knits just arrived at the shop and has fabulous patterns for young ones. Most of the patterns are unisex styles and all of them are very simple designs.
This is my favorite pattern in the book (I wish it came in my size), but really every one is worth making. There are 10 different sweaters and a bunch of darling accessories. This book is definitelty a keeper !
